Is the quarterback race over at Alabama?

Is the quarterback race over at Alabama? Coach Nick Saban will cringe if he reads this because nothing is over until coach Saban says its over. But, barring injury, I think it’s over. Based on the numbers, junior Greg McElroy was impressive and showed a very good grasp of the offense in Wednesday’s first scrimmage, completing 22 of 33 passes for 214 yards and 4 TD (2 INT). Redshirt freshman Star Jackson completed 6 of 16 for 25 yards and an interception. Walk-on Thomas Darrah threw three interceptions in 20 attempts.

McElroy is ahead and he should be ahead because he has played and knows the offense.
